Herring barrels and boats at Ullapool Pier

This photo shows herring being packed into barrels at West Shore Street, Ullapool. Several fishing boats can be seen in the background. The village of Ullapool is situated on the northern shore of Loch Broom. It began in 1788 as a planned village, designed for the British Fisheries Society by Thomas Telford. Although the herring fishing industry declined in the 19th century, Ullapool continues to thrive because of its harbour. Today it is the terminus of the car ferry service from Stornoway and a popular tourist centre.
